Saturday May 21, several conservative groups will hold a rally in Montgomery in support of Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore.

Sanctity of Marriage Alabama announced Thursday that Kayla Moore (wife of Chief Justice Roy Moore and President of the Foundation for Moral Law) and State Senator Dick Brewbaker (R-Montgomery) will be among the speakers to address supporters of Chief Justice Roy Moore at a statewide rally on Saturday.

The group, Sanctity of Marriage Alabama, said that they expect that friends of Chief Justice Moore, conservative organizations across the state, and churches, “Who support the Chief Justice’s stand for God, for marriage, and for the Constitution will rally”

The rally will be at the Heflin-Torbert Judicial Building in Montgomery on Saturday, May 21, 2016 from 11:00am to 12:00 noon.

Dr. Tom Ford III, with Sanctity of Marriage Alabama wrote recently to the Judicial Inquiry Commission, “We are disappointed in you. We are appalled by your capitulation. We are indignant over the politically motivated charges you levied against an elected official we trust. And we intend to do all we can to ensure that the people of Alabama understand that when lines were drawn, you took the wrong side before God, before the law, and before the people of the State of Alabama, and you grossly overstepped your jurisdiction.” Ford is the Pastor of Grace Baptist Church.

Several pastors, including Ford and Alabama Republican Vice Chairman Troy Towns, held a rally in Montgomery on Thursday to support Moore.

There is a lot of support for Chief Justice Moore in the Christian community’

On May 13, Catholic Bishop of the Diocese of Birmingham Robert J. Baker wrote in the ‘One Voice’, “Chief Justice Moore has not only taken the higher moral ground; he has made a decision based on what many believe is a proper interpretation of First Amendment Rights.” “Even if the Federal Judiciary rules against him, the court of public opinion in Alabama will most likely not.”

The Alabama Judiciary Commission (JIC) suspended the elected Chief Justice, because the Southern Poverty Law Center and some groups on the far left complained.

Chief Justice Moore’s wife, Kayla Moore said, “They don’t want you saying anything about what they do in their bedroom, but they want to come into our bathrooms? Enough!”

Rally organizers say that they expect elected officials and pastors to publicly stand with Chief Justice Roy Moore recognizing that even as he stands for God’s truth, for marriage, and for the law, he has done nothing to deserve charges or suspension from his position.
